Dress up as a Napoleonic soldier, pick up a cannonball and discover the fascinating lives of past inhabitants at this 200+ year old seafront fortress.
Explore the gun platforms, parade ground, giant shipwreck sculpture and the dank dark prison cells, while you discover the many heinous crimes committed by its past prisoners.
Costumed interpreters will guide you through the lives of past soldiers, medics, wives and cooks, while special events include film showings, re-enactments, children's trails and crafts, stargazing and spooky Twilight Tours in October.
